Description:

Recent research underscores a serious lack of preparedness among hospitals nationwide and a dearth of credible educational programs and resources on hospital emergency preparedness. As the only text of its kind, Health Care Emergency Management specifically addresses hospital and health system preparedness in the face of a large scale disaster or other emergency. Through case studies, scenarios and practical examples, this text engages the reader in active learning. Each chapter includes learning objectives and end of chapter questions for content review. Administrators, emergency preparedness coordinators, or clinical staff who are charged with managing preparedness and emergency management functions for hospitals or health care systems turn to this guide as an essential reference in planning for large scale disasters.
